I had planned on this being a post to show you how to fix a problem with some recent versions of the All-in-One SEO plugin for WordPress, but actually, the solution’s as simple as downloading the latest version – 188.8.131.52 – and installing it on your site.
The problem that I was going to describe would be one where you hadn’t set an option in the Options panel of putting your blog’s title into the Home Title section, your blog’s homepage would wind up not having a title at all. While your blog’s title would still be visible in the body of the site, search engines would see your site as not having a title.
Fortunately, according to the Change Log, this issue has been rectified by going back to the old behavior of having the plugin revert to the blog title in case the Home Title wasn’t set in the options panel.
I have to say that while some people complain about the frequent updating of the plugin, I think it’s a good thing to see that uberdose, the author of the plugin, pays attention to bugfixes and makes sure to not leave things unresolved for a long time.
I’ll be honest – I don’t update it every time there is a new update; generally, I do plugin upgrades at one time every so often – but when I have a setup that works, I like having it stay the same and not worrying if an upgraded plugin will break the site (which is very unlikely anyway). 😉
